Based on true events surrounding the Falklands War, the New York Times &́#x80;“bestselling master of modern spy-craft delivers a tale of warfare in the shadows. 1982. The Falkland Islands in South America -- long claimed by Great Britain -- are being contested by Argentina. When Argentina makes a move to occupy the islands, war breaks out as the world holds its breath to see what happens next. Determined to stay ahead of the enemy at the onset of hostilities, British Intelligence orders beautiful agent Gabrielle Legrand to seduce a high-ranking military official in the Argentine Embassy in London. But what begins as a mission becomes genuine love -- and Gabrielle will soon be forced to make a tragic choice between her heart and her country. As the war winds down with Great Britain taking the day, the Argentines make a last move for victory. They have made an agreement with international arms broker Felix Donner for a delivery of deadly French-made Exocet missiles that would turn the tide of battle with devastating effect. It's up to Gabrielle to stop the exchange. But Donner is much worse than an arms dealer. And if his true motives are realized, the Falklands War will be the lit fuse on a major global conflagration. Hailed by Tom Clancy as "the master," Jack Higgins has thrilled millions with his brilliant works, including the worldwide phenomenon The Eagle Has Landed, which was made into a blockbuster film, and such recent bestsellers as Rain on the Dead and The Midnight Bell.
